Gorilla Habituation Experience
Gorilla habituation experience is one of the greatest safaris you will enjoy in Africa. Gorilla habituation is a process where wild Mountain Gorillas are followed by a team of researchers in company with National park rangers, training them to get used to human presence in the Jungle. Gorilla habituation process takes between two to three years to be completed and during this period researchers and rangers keep following them on a daily basis. They learn more about individual Gorillas and the way they behave feed and nest at the end of the day. When these Gorillas get used to these researchers and rangers each individual Gorilla is given a name and once they confirm that they can be tracked they introduce a mock exercise where some few visitors who may include scientists, ranger guides start visiting them.
Thereafter this Gorilla family will be introduced to Gorilla tracking daily. Gorilla habituation experience is only allowed to only 4 tourists to take part in the process. What to consider before booking Mountain Gorilla habituation, permits should be booked in advance because there are very few slots for tourists and besides that Mountain Gorilla habituation process is a highly desired activity. At the end of your Gorilla habituation exercise you will be rewarded a certificate for successfully completing the activity.
